Alabama's Best Doctors 2103


UAB Places 323 Physicians on Best Doctors in America List

Hundreds of the nation’s top physicians practice at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Health System, according to the latest edition of the Best Doctors in America ® database.

The 2013 list recognizes 323 UAB physicians in 65 specialties who are among the top 5 percent of clinicians in the United States, as voted by their peers.  62 of the physicians are pediatric doctors, a number of whom are listed more than once.  Please see the UAB-COA pediatric list below.

Best Doctors is an independent, knowledge-based medical referral service headquartered in Boston. Its surveys ask peer physicians, “If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty or a related specialty, to whom would you refer them?”

Nominations for the list are anonymous, and doctors’ evaluations are confidential, according to the company. The system of review, based on methodology started in 1989, includes a method of catching and correcting bias for or against particular physicians or groups of physicians. Listings cannot be purchased.

This list was featured in the December issue of Birmingham Magazine.
